    The Ad-Block extension for Safari completely sucks. Sometimes it stops working altogether and I have to disable/enable the extension. Even when it is working properly, I find that it doesn't block all ads (embedded video ads drive me nuts). The firefox equivalent is a million times better.

    Anyhow, what would be a simple but effective alternative? I had a different ad-blocking software installed before, which was slightly better (not great), but I can't for the life of me remember what it's called. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Yes, create rules. You can paste the complete path to an image into the host field and it flows into the path field as necessary.

    I have AdBlock installed and its fine :confused:

    Stupid question but i'm guessing you got it from the safari extension gallery and not a 3rd party site?

    hm. okay. i'll keep giving it a try, but something tells me i'll prefer the ease of Adblock's right click, block image much more. :eek:

    i was using Adblock and it was fine too, but jw if glimmer block might work better.
